Thank you for your interest in the Non-resident tuition credit offered to Nebraska taxpayers. The following is a summary of the credit and its application process.
The University of Nebraska will generate and mail 1098T forms to all students who were enrolled during the Tax Year that just ended. The forms will be mailed by January 31st to the student's permanent address unless a billing address has been specified.
Per IRS regulations, institutions must select whether they will report qualified payments received in box 1, or qualified tuition and fees billed in box 2 of the 1098T form. The University has elected to report based on qualified tuition and fees billed, and therefore completes box 2 of the 1098T form.
Box 2 will show the qualified tuition and fees, less any related reductions in charges that were billed during the tax year. The amount in box 2 may represent an amount other than the amount actually paid during the tax year against the appropriate charges. Please consult the IRS publications listed above and your tax advisor for help in determining amounts you may be able to claim.
Box 5 will show all qualified scholarships and grants that appeared on your billing statement for those terms during the tax year.

The 1098E form verifies the amount of interest paid on student loans. The form will be mailed from your student loan lender. If you received a Federal Perkins Loan from UNO and paid interest on your loan during the Tax Year just ended, then you will receive a 1098E form from our billing service, AMS Servicing Group (AMS). Keep in mind that the 1098E form from AMS will reflect only the interest paid on your Perkins Loan from UNO. It is possible that you will receive several 1098E forms - - one from each of your student loan lenders.
